Plain Magazine: A Weird World Of Coincidences on the Streets of NYC
"A love letter to New York, Higbee’s photographs celebrate the serendipitous nature of many of the interactions experienced in the constantly shifting city, his stills capturing the strange, amusing and just plain weird quirks that can be witnessed if you’re always looking." -- Toby Orton, Plain Magazine
My Modern Met: Street Photographer Hunts Down Life’s Uncanny Coincidences
"Higbee's work shows dedication, a quick wit, and even quicker trigger finger, as spying these moments and catching them before they pass by is a skill honed from years of careful practice. It's work that encourages viewers to open their eyes to new perspectives, and delight in the small details of life." -- Jessica Stewart, My Modern Met
"For over a decade, photographer Jonathan Higbee has walked the streets of New York with a camera in-hand, spotting extraordinary juxtapositions and unusual moments when the world aligns for a split second in front of his lens. At times he manages to completely erase the boundaries between manufactured imagery found in billboards or signage that pollute the city streets and captures anonymous passersby who seem to live in an alternate reality." -- Christopher Jobson, Colossal
"In my opinion, the single biggest skill necessary to make strong street photography is the power of observation. If one learns how to truly be present in the moment (and take themselves out of it) step back and observe life, they can then tap into a special quality of the moment that so few have access to. This is the nature and appeal of voyeurism."
June 21, 2017 "Curious moments arise every day on the streets of New York. The scenes captured by Jonathan Higbee with his Leica Q, however, are so way-out, funny and noteworthy, that we couldn’t avoid asking the LFI Gallery photographer a few questions. A chat about street photography, the talent of precise observation and the street as a stage." -- LFI

The new organization aims to be a comprehensive home base for the art of street photography on the Web.
"I love this work. It’s bright, bold, and certainly beautiful - especially for New York City - the famous “black and white city” as Woody Allen would say. I say, “New York City a.k.a. fifty shades of brown”. But Jonathan Higbee busts that claim with this collection. Whether this work finds its home on a bank wall, above the bed in a boutique hotel room, or in Madonna’s penthouse - it’s photography, it’s art, and it should be on its way to iconic status because it is New York City in one of the freshest, most compelling, most colorful takes of recent times." - Michael Ernest Sweet, Huffington Post
